Asansör (Turkish for "elevator", derived from the French word ascenseur) is a historical building in İzmir's Karataş quarter, within the boundaries of the metropolitan district of Konak. It was built in 1907 as a work of public service by a wealthy Jewish banker and trader of that period, Nesim Levi Bayraklıoğlu, in order to ease passage from the narrow coastline of Karataş to the hillside, the elevator within the building serving to carry people and goods through the steep cliff between the two parts of the quarter. In time, the small street that led to the building also came to be known under the same name, Asansör Street (Asansör Sokağı). In the 1940s, one of the residents of the street was the singer Dario Moreno, who was to attain fame later. It was recently restored and since then, became one of the landmarks of İzmir.

View is amazing from up top. Place closes at 1030pm. We had the set menu for 80TL+ steak and 70TL +chicken dish..the steak was delicious, so tasty and not chewy at all. Its a very romantic place.
Amazing place with awesome view of the Izmir city. Be strong enough if you take stairs to go up ;)
you don't go there to eat, you go there to enjoy the view and maybe drink something, so don't listen to whinners who complain about the food. just enjoy the view and take tons of photos
It's a good place, and I'm happy to visit this place and I will recommend this place to all my friends
